Professor Kathy Pain, Real Estate & Planning's Director of Research, was interviewed recently by CCTV America on China's Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic zone, a new-mega metropolis which is emerging in Northern China. The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration plan affects a total population of more than 100 million people and is the biggest urbanized region in Northern China. Its full integration aims to combine Beijing’s culture and high-tech industries with Tianjin’s port facilities and the resources of the Hebei province. 

The CCTV America programme discussed the economic potential of this zone and Professor Pain was joined by fellow experts: Professor Zhang Li, chair of the Architecture Department at Tsinghua University, Beijing, Zhao Jinhua, assistant professor of Urban Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Wendell Cox, Principal of Demographia, an International public policy firm based in St Louis.
